Our mission statement

Why Discovery Kidzone?

Discovery Kidzone Montessori School honors the imagination, mind, heart and developmental experiences for infants, toddlers, preschoolers and school age children.  We strive to cultivate each child’s natural desire to learn and to foster his curiosity and love of knowledge with our creative environments, outdoor classrooms and STEM centers.   Guided by the work of Maria Montessori combined with the latest research in developmental practice and inspired by Reggio Emilia, we create an environment where children are inspired to realize their academic, personal and social potential. Discovery Kidzone utilizes the Bible as the foundation of learning. 

We are the trendsetter in early care and learning – we are the first choice of parents, children, and teachers.  We strive to be the provider and the employer of choice.  We respect and honor our customer’s wishes and we treat our staff as if they are family.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How can I find out how my child is doing?

Parents may phone or e-mail at any time. Parents may also request a parent/teacher meeting. We have an open door policy so parents may drop in at any time, but please stop by the office so that we can make sure the visit is not disruptive to the child or the classroom. Sometimes a peek through the window might be a better option.

2. How is parent-teacher communication conducted?

Teachers and Administrators are always available to speak with parents about any concern, and a parent may request a meeting with their child’s teachers at any time. Dropping off or picking up can be a busy time for staff. We encourage you to make an appointment so that undivided attention may be given to you. Teachers will communicate regularly with parents about their child’s progress and milestones being reached. Additionally, each child is sent home with a form daily that communicates how the child enjoyed school, as well as the activities of the child’s day. Each year in the spring and fall, teachers evaluate their students’ progress through assessments which accompany parent-teacher conferences. Teachers also contact parent via Life Cubby, our online parent portal.

3. How can I be involved in my child's school experience?

We gladly welcome parents to join us for special celebrations, birthdays and presentations. Additionally, parents may volunteer in their child’s classroom or simply stop by to visit! A teacher may also ask for parent volunteers to help with a particular activity. If you would like to participate you may always ask the teachers for opportunities.

4. Do you offer part-time schedules?

Yes, for children in our Early Childhood programs (Toddlers, Preschool, and Pre-Kindergarten). Part-time options include 3 day programs (Monday/Wednesday/Friday) or 2 day programs (Tuesday/Thursday).

5. Do the children nap regularly?

Children in our Nido and Early Childhood programs nap every day.
Nap time is from 12:30 to 2:30 PM. If your child has outgrown the need for a daily nap, he or she will be required to rest quietly on their mat while the rest of the children sleep.
